Radon - Overview
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the importance of understanding the dangers of radon, the risk of not remediating radon problems and how to remediate radon problems.


Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. That's because when you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
